nvme-wdc-drive-log — Retrieve WDC device's drive log and save to file.
nvme wdc drive-log <device> [--output-file=<FILE>, -o <FILE>]
For the NVMe device given, sends the wdc vendor unique drive log request and saves the result to a file.
The <device> parameter is mandatory and may be either the NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0), or a namespace block device (ex: /dev/nvme0n1).
This will only work on WDC devices supporting this feature. Results for any other device are undefined.

# nvme wdc drive-log /dev/nvme0
Gets the drive log from the device and saves to defined file in current directory (e.g. testSTM00019F3F9drive_log.bin):
# nvme wdc drive-log /dev/nvme0 -o test
Gets the drive log from the device and saves to defined file with pathname (e.g. /tmp/testSTM00019F3F9drive_log.bin):
